@Kuhang

Then our gaming interests are very much different than each other. I have 17 retail games (plus a few downloaded ones and then a ton of downloaded games which is more games than that are on my non Nintendo consoles. To me, the system is not a pathetic system. Just sales wise it is and yeah, 3rd party. The games that are on there, I enjoy very much and most of them, you can't get on other consoles. I myself has accepted the fact that 3rd party games just don't come any more. So, my system is basically a Nintendo game system however there are a ton of games I enjoy, some games still yet to come that I am really looking forward too even if it is just Nintendo and then the games it doesn't have, well, that is what PC and other systems are for. So again, it isn't a pathetic system to me as it has games I love playing and I've well gotten my moneys worth out of it.

As for the delays thing happening... It is something I have come to expect now. Personally, I don't care too much because I know the game is coming. There really isn't that much to get the blood boiling over because there is still other things to do or play for me. Also, it is not like delays are just on Nintendo systems either, they are on the other systems just as much, the only difference, the other systems have a higher volume of games so the delays are a bit more hidden and overshadowed.

@JaxonH Part of the problem is that this is the first time Nintendo has announced the next console so early. Sure, it is not a full fledged official announcement, but they let everyone know that it is coming with it sounding like it will be talked about in 2016.

Hopefully this isn't delayed to the next system. lol

@HopeNForever

Don't spread false hope. If you make an announcement solely to say that the 2015 release is no longer a priority, then that is saying "Expect the game to be delayed"... or in other words... "It's delayed"

also, those people are complaining because of the VC titles half the time such as Golden Sun, Fire Emblem, Metroid, Mega Man, Etc. We still have yet to get Kirby for the Wii and Donkey Kong Returns. Yes, we know you have to wait for the Wii U game in Europe but that is due to translations/localizations and for the rating of the game. Something Nintendo can't really control unless they delay the game everywhere for a global release (or spend a lot more to release the game to get everything translated at once) where as the VC titles, a lot of that work is already don't so delaying those in other regions.... it is just stupid.

I wonder.... if Link was a girl from the beginning...and then they changed her (him) to a guy for something would people make a big deal about it? Either saying it is great or... say it is now sexist against women? I know people often complain about him always being a dude and that there is never enough female main roles making it sexist so I'm curious. :D.

This game won't be enough to get me to consider a new 3DS

@CrimSkies97 If it is stronger than the gamecube, it is stronger than the Wii because the Wii was nothing more than an over clocked gamecube, All the hardware was basically the same. That is why backwards compatibility worked so well with the Wii and the gamecube and that the Wii was found to not even be twice as powerful.

This is what the Wii U was supposed to do.....and we all know how that works... Please don't come up with something that people just won't see what to do with it and then they just walk away because they don't want to deal with it....

As long as they keep doing the handhelds and home consoles, I don't care what they do. If they stop those and go just mobile... well it looks like I am going to either Microsoft of Sony (probably Sony)

As long a they continue to make consoles (both handheld and home console) and continue to make games for those, I don't care. If they stop doing that and go strictly mobile... well, I guess my console of choice will be switching.

If there is a kickstarter coming then it definitely won't be an exclusive for any platform.

@Nintendzoey
Considering how Microsoft destroyed what they created before, I doubt they will.

@Peach64

That is 28k a year before they even sell the game... I'd say that is pretty decent for getting paid without completing their product.

@faint Lol, why? Because it was only the last generation and that's what one of the topics of my post was. Nintendo and people seem to have the idea what Hardware doesn't matter any more because Nintendo had one fantastic generation with the Wii due to the anomaly it was. It the Wii never had motion controls, it'd be just as bad as the gamecube... or worse as the WIi was an over clocked gamecube. But then again when you look at the Wii, the motion controls were hardware, hardware that people liked and didn't seem dated so they developed for it. The problem is that everyone has this illusion that Hardware matters. Nintendo nailed it with the hardware people wanted with the Wii. They didn't with the gamecube because they decided to be arrogant and think people didn't care about discs. Then with the gamecube, they went with mini discs.... still, people didn't want to develop for it. Now it is all about hardware power. Something Nintendo again was arrogant to see and was totally obviouslt towards the end of last gen as people started comparing which hardware was better, Xbox 360 or PS3 while the Wii dwindled and died and by the end of the last generation,l it was one of the worst selling consoles (the worst selling home console). Nintendo ignored this fact and now they're paying for it.

@faint really??? The Gambeboy... the GBA.... lol, look at the competition it had. Also, handhelds don't count, why? Because Because hardware doesn't matter too much with those because of the age demography they are targeted to and it is what games are on there. The SNES, they was the market share Nintendo already owned. Look what happened after the SNES and that will speak for itself. The Wii was an anomaly, it was something that adding something completely new to the gaming market that intrigued a lot of people which Xbox and Sony tried to Mimic but it didn't work, Why? because it was already done.

Also, you cannot compare the old generations to the new ones especially with the way technology has gone. So much advancements in a short period of time now. Basically Nintendo release a console that already felt 6-7 years old with a touch screen that made it awkward for people to develop for leading to the gamepad not being utilized much and is now just basically a second screen. The only people really doing anything with it is Nintendo... in fact, Nintendo is basically one of the only ones really doing anything for the Wii U. In the future, there is hardly anything coming from 3rd parties because the Wii U is just not 3rd party friendly due to the dated hardware and the gamepad. No one wants it, Nintendo screwed up. You can keep believing that hardware doesn't matter when it completely does now. We are not living in the 90s and early 2000s any more.

@shinokami It is still slow and the reason 3rd parties left it is because the Wii U is basically like a last gen system with the touch screen. 3rd party left because they don't want to develop for yesterdays (or at least don't want to think they develop for yesterday). Nintendo needs to learn that the Wii anomaly will not happen for them again, at least not for a few generations.
